Notification for unchanged measure value

Hello,

we monitored the number of a message queue, and we would like to leave to send a notification if the value does not change for 6 hours. Does anyone have an idea how we can configure in dynaTrace.

Thanks and regards
Matthias

Hi Matthias

Unfortunately this is not possible at the moment. Incidents are based on measures and evaluate the value of a measure in a specified time interval. It cant trigger an alert in case a value is constant for a certain period.
The workaround in your case would be to write a Monitoring Plugin that returns a value indicating whether the queue length has been the same for the last X hours. The monitor plugin therefore would need to evaluate the message queue length and keep track of its value for X hours. In case it is stable for that long it returns a different value as if it would change. With that you can then create an incident that is based on that monitor value.

I have the same requirement. Can you share details on how you solved this problem?

Is the plugin going to be available in public?
